This book aims at enhancing the understanding of topics in crystallography through solving numerical problems. Designed into nine chapters on major topics in crystallography, the book deals with more than 600 carefully selected solved examples, problems, and multiple-choice questions. Unit cell composition, construction and calculations, Miller indices, structure factor calculations, and X-ray diffraction methods are some of the many useful topics discussed in this book. Each chapter begins with a brief theoretical explanation of the topic followed by solved numerical examples for further clarity on the subject.

The topic "crystallography" is interdisciplinary in nature. Its rudimentary knowledge, therefore, is essential to the beginners in physics, chemistry, mathematics, molecular biology, geology, metallurgy, and particularly materials science and mineralogy. This book also is of immense value to senior undergraduate and graduate students of physics, chemistry, and other basic sciences.

M. A. WAHAB is Former Professor and Head of the Department of Physics, Jamia Millia Islamia, New Delhi, India. He completed his Ph.D. in Physics from the University of Delhi, India. Earlier, he served as Lecturer at the P. G. Department of Physics and Electronics, University of Jammu, Jammu and Kashmir, India, from 1981 and later, at the P. G. Department of Physics, Jamia Millia Islamia, from 1985. During these years, he taught electrodynamics, statistical mechanics, theory of relativity, advanced solid-state physics, crystallography, physics of materials, growth and imperfections of materials, and general solid-state physics. He has authored 3 books and over 100 research papers in national and international journals of repute and supervised 15 Ph.D. theses during his career at Jamia Millia Islamia. Professor Wahab has published a paper on the discovery of hexagonal close packing (HCP) and rhombohedral close packing (RCP) as two new space lattices, along with his son (Khurram Mujtaba Wahab), as their first joint paper after his retirement.
